Silent Downfall by BLPH Silent Downfall by BLPH
"Day after day, year after year, I had always admired how our satellite rose from the horizon. However, I knew that some day, it must come to an end. An end that concludes our era."

<physics>
Technically, objects as large as planets will tear each other apart due to gravitational forces, resulting in at least one being completely crushed into debris that will then (assuming the centrifugal force is not strong enough to compensate gravity) fall down on the remains of the other one as a meteorite-swarm. No, you don't want that.
Alternatively, if they approach at a greater speed, the gravity will more or less be unnecessary for apocalyptic events. It's like what happens when two cars crash -- just roughly 3 million times larger. And no, you don't want that either :p

This is a collab between the awesomely-amazing ~bloknayrb :iconbloknayrb: and myself. Bryan gave me this beatiful planet which I then blended into the landscape. Great working with ya! :)

Please check out his version as well: [link]
No, wait, this is not a friendly advice, it's an order! So gogogogogogogo! [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] :D

Edit (yes, even on the same day xD)
We took some input from *kire1987, *ChrisCold, *freelancah, and =aRchAng3lZz into account and are proud to present you the version with increased awesomeness-factor. Enjoy² :D

Fortunately, any solid object with enough gravity to be round is far beyond the maximum point where it's gravity is weak enough for the thing to break apart like that.  Unless of course it directly collides with something .
